A real surprise. Had the feast for 4, there were multiple courses, and the quality of the food exceeded expectations. The service was friendly and highly competent. Simon made the experience a special one. I give this my highest recommendation.

Locals don’t eat here, and in a strip full of pumping restaurants, cafes and bars, that should be enough of a sign. Standard food, standard service, nothing remarkable.More

I've been here three times - firstly as part of the all you can eat night which they no longer have (that was amazing) and then twice with work. Great food and atmosphere - lovely staff. Spring rolls are my fave!
